Winery notes (2013 Vintage)
"​It has a deep brick red colour and is in bright condition. The nose is classic, almost old-fashioned Wilyabrup cabernet sauvignon, showing all the hallmarks of the region and taking us back to the future – we could almost be tasting a 1983. There are aromas of redcurrant, mulberry and blackberry with the typical background of a touch of eucalypt and tar and behind this is a touch of spicy, toasty oak. The palate is full bodied, with generous red and black fruits. Whereas with the Merlot there is brightness and freshness, this wine has density and concentration. The tannins are firm and provide a long platform upon which the fruit flavours sit and yet the wine finishes with roundness and balance."
94/100 James Halliday's Wine Companion (2013 Vintage)
"92% cabernet sauvignon, plus 4% each of cabernet franc and merlot, half destemmed to a small open fermenter, the other half to a static fermenter, plunged or pumped over accordingly, matured in French barriques (8% new) for 28 months. A forthright cabernet, medium to full-bodied with fruit, oak and tannins all making significant contributions. It is easy to see why the wine was given such a lengthy stay in oak – it must have been a handful when young. Even now it is chock-full of blackcurrant and bay leaf fruit."
93/100 Cameron Douglas MS (2013 Vintage)
"​Like its Merlot brother from the same vineyard – it takes a while for this wine to give up its bouquet as well – with the same result: Lots of dark berries with blackberry and blue fruit aromas; a mix of hay, tobacco and baked bell-pepper; loads of oak with spice, new wood and sweetness, hints of brown sugar. On the palate – delicious, rich, full-bodied and packed with muscle; dark berry flavours, lots of oak loaded with vanilla and spices, fairly toasty; plenty of ripe tannins with typical nail point impact and medium acidity. Lengthy, and well made."
92/100 Bob Campbell MW (2013 Vintage)
"​Dense, intense Cabernet Sauvignon, with bright black berry and cranberry flavours together with a liberal influence of spicy oak. Attractive Cabernet Sauvignon, with in an elegant and quite powerful style. Needs time to develop its full potential."
